Seen & Heard: Ruchi

••• More news about Tribeca shops on Fashion’s Night Out on Sept. 10…. A Uno Tribeca will have trunk shows, informal modeling, and wine. La Lumia, meanwhile, will offer light refreshments along with personal shopping by owner/founder Jackie Sencion; anyone who purchases $150 worth of goods will be entered to win a LaLu Leathers leather handbag valued at $595. Moreover, La Lumia is donating 10 percent of Fashion’s Night Out proceeds to the NYC AIDS Fund.

••• A letter came in recently from the Society for the Preservation of at Least One Indian Restaurant Near South BPC: “Since you reviewed BLT Bar & Grill, I thought you might be interested in another restaurant in the same neighborhood. A cute little Indian place opened a few months ago on the most desolate corner in America, at 120 Cedar (at Greenwich, behind the fire house and across from the Deutsche Bank building). It’s called Ruchi, the food is good (a little too spicy for me but they try to bring down the heat when I ask), the staff is very nice, and I want to see them do well.” I stopped by to take this photo, and the staff was indeed very nice. According to the restaurant’s website, there are also lunch and dinner specials available.

••• Canal Park Playhouse (more about it here) has a nice new awning.

••• A reminder that tickets (a steal at $50) are on sale for the Friends of Duane Park’s Inside Tribeca Loft Tour, on Oct. 17.

••• Tomorrow, some sandwich will be 50% off at Moomah. Which one? It depends what wins today’s Facebook contest. Just name your favorite in the comments on that page and the winner will be discounted.

••• Speaking of votes: BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center would like to remind you that it’s up for Best Theatre Group for Kids in the Nickelodeon Parents Connect Parents’ Picks awards. Vote here as often as once a day until August 31.

••• Tonight from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Maslow 6 will host a “full-blown end-of-summer rosé tasting” with Troy Bowen from Jenny & Francois Imports and Tad Drouet from Michael Skurnik.

••• I stopped by Jack Hanley Gallery today to check out the Kal Spelletich exhibit, and I got to talking to a staffer about the show’s closing event on Saturday (6–9 p.m.). There’ll be DJs, beer, and BBQ—but when they say BBQ they mean they’re roasting hot dogs on this contraption piece of art. When it’s turned on, a flame comes out and the spikes act like a rotisserie. Expect marshmallows, too.
